It’s been about 9 weeks since my last color. I swear my hair grew faster when I was dyeing it and has now decided to slow down without the constant onslaught of chemicals.
I bought a few hats/beanies to wear when it reaches a couple inches in new growth, but by then, it will be too warm to wear them. Hiding my demarcation line will become difficult.

Having “older” looking hair at age 50 is better than having almost no hair at age 60 because I damaged my scalp so badly. Then there’s the risk of bladder cancer, and the fact that I can’t, in good conscience, claim I live a more natural and holistic life while I’m pouring chemicals on my hair every 4 weeks.
